Cuisinart Microwave won't heat food

I have a Cuisinart CMW 100 Stainless Steel Microwave. We bought it at an auction got it home to find out that it won't heat food. Also found out that the piece to turn the turntable is missing. I would like to know if that would be the problem of it not heating food or is it something else. We tried to warm up some chicken fried steak in it and after 8 minutes the food was still cold.

Nice machine...

Turn table the "won't heat food" issue? = No.

Possibly a fuse... More likely the magnetron (thing that generates the really really short wave radio frequencies)...

Easily damaged by running the microwave for SINGLE pats of butter...
Or a multitude of other misuse/abuse (See manual).

Parts/Spares opportunities abound on the Internet... Typically all for the VERY SAME Parts...

Do get three estimates.
Just saying...
Appliancepartspros.com... Or Sears (immediately below, ($$$$)).

The cause could be a defective magnetron, or inverter board, 7 years or less, or possibily the keypad control.

Microwave is loud


It is normal to have a moderate sound, but if extremely loud it indicates trouble with the magnetron, should be returned for a replacement.

Just purchased our Cuisinart Stainless Microwave, plugged it in, read the operational instructions and set the clock. As a test, we tried to heat water....does not work. Any suggestions?


Yes! Take it right back to the store for exchange, cause could be a bad magnetron "that heats food" and a couple parts that work together with the magnetron,or there may be issues with the keypad, none of these will be cheap to fix.

Cuisinart CMW-100 , wont heat or turn the table? all else o.k.


We changed the 20amp fuse and that was not the problem so we returned it to Macy's. If anyone knows of a reliable brand of microwave today please let us know. All the reviews on microwave ovens recently are bad.

Turn table shattered while making pop corn. Cuisinart ModelCmw100


You can order a replacement dish here. The dish shattered because the heat from the bag of popcorn was too much for it. If you look at the owner's manual for almost every microwave, they tell you not to put popcorn directly on the glass dish, but to put it on another plate.

The oven should be safe to use. Just look for any burned spots on the paint in the bottom of the cooking cavity.
